If polish, nail would not have fallen off! Please, your derma & primary with their " need dr house" comments, & not even 1 blood test! ER, making you choose what you are there for? Your primary is good for referral only right now ,imho. I would see an internist that treats & tests ALL body systems. I would get scraping culture on nail, EMG to check for nerve damage, blood work to check for infection, chemistry for dizziness, swelling etc. Worry later about back, first you want to see why you are SO sick! Ortho, then spine specialist neurosurgeon. Please keep us posted. Imo, you needed the right testing yesterday. Thank you, curious! Hope you get answers soon.

P.s. all those diagnoses that you listed were just opinions, with no testing with abnormal results right? So sorry. Something wrong- someone can fix! Bless you!
I am seeing an infectious disease PCP. I think what the problem is that all my sympotoms seem to be a part of many diseases out there, which is causing the confusion along with my blood work up coming back normal. Nothing has came back abnormal besides having a UTI and a high count of proten in my urine. Thats whats stumping all the Doctors. Normally when you have the physical symptoms showing your blood work would show something? The opinions that I have received so far are Fibromyalgia, Raynauds Syndrome, Sjogrens Syndrome, Arthritis, Connective Tissue Disorder. At one point they thought I had MS. Made me do a MRI of my brain. Everything fine upstairs. I will talk more to my PCP on the 14th and see what is what then. I'm just going with the flow of things now and waiting for something else to malfunction. LOL! It's really not funny but that is all I have left is my sense of humor. Thank you for caring I truely apreciate being able to vent an have someone listen.
